    I recently appeared before this judge for the first time on behalf of 3 clients. I found her to be very professional, well organized, and thorough in her questions and demeanor. Yes, she is a senior citizen and a bit formal in her demeanor, but not at all condescending or rude. I never felt that she was anything other than cordial and super respectful toward me or my clients. She was completely fair, objective, and gave me/my clients ample time to speak and present the case in detail. She even rendered a favorable bench decision in one of the cases and joked with me and my client afterwards, off the record.

    I don’t know why others’ comments here are so critical. Many of them sound like just personal cheap shots (slamming her age) or sour grapes from those with weak cases. Or perhaps they were rude to her first, unduly argumentative, interrupted her, or lacked respect for her experience or office. That’s certainly not unusual to see in this day and age.

    I found so many complaint against this judge that it is apparent that she is incapable of making sound decision. She disregards legitimate proof of disability from doctors and refuses to grant Veterans their rightfully earned SSDI. Shame on her!

    She certainly appeared old – I have no idea whether she is or not. She certainly understands how living in rural nevada can be cathartic – and sometimes better than professional counseling or psychotic drugs.

    I think she wants to gather all appropriate information and is not afraid to take the time to do so. again whether she is fair in her rulings is not something that I can evaluate – I liked the one she gave me.

    This judge is so old I question her ability to make sound decisions! She is very hard of hearing and I believe out of touch with people and their plights.Very Rude to people just the way she speaks to them like she is superior.

    She definitely thinks the world revolves around her just because she is a Judge. She announces that she sits on the bench and we should all bow down to her because that makes her extremely special and no one else in the world is as important as her.

    I agree with all afore mentioned opinions.What is this woman doing in such an important position?? My “unfavorable” decision was not only insulting, but accused me of being immoral and accused me of illegal dealings that were assumed and if she had asked me I could have explained to her satisfaction. I have worked since I was 15 and now because of a crippling disease at 45, I can no longer work. I am not a liar! Because of the decision this Judge, who is suppose to be fair and making decisions in our best interest, I am being evicted from my apartment and cannot feed my 8 year old son. I have nowhere to go. What do I do now?

    Poor professional. Probably makes up her mind before the hearing, and then attempts to fit the hearing into what she has already decided. Has a history of hiding her unfavorable presumptions rather than to disclose them, so that the party cannot argue against them during the hearing.

    I Want to truly believe that these Judges have our best interests in mind and want to see the honestly disabled to be taken care of in the proper manner and not be judged a liar because of those who take advantage of a system that is here to help us. My lawyer on the other hand, also has about as much medical background as the Judge. And, what a putz. Judge Burlison, please READ the records and if questions arise, you might find that the disabled party has studied all the records and would be happy to very quickly go over those records with you so that they make sense. Lawyers – You might want to spend more than 5 minutes with your client.
